Yet another customized version of the Firefox web browser has been released to the public, and this time it does not put the spotlight on the Microsoft-developed search engine Bing, which is touted as being a “decision engine” not a search engine, because it helps people make decisions.

This recently released customized version puts the spotlight on a sport that is loved by many across the world: surfing. Mozilla, in partnership with Rip Curl, has released a RIP Curl Edition of Firefox. The release of the customized Firefox version marks the launch of the collaboration between Mozilla and Rip Curl.

“We're as surprised as you are, but apparently there's another kind of surfing than what you do online. Who knew? Firefox has partnered with Rip Curl, one of the biggest surf companies in the world, to bring you a custom version of our browser pre-loaded with a Rip Curl Persona, plus useful links and tabs,” said Mozilla, the non-profit organization behind the Firefox browser.

As a matter of fact, the Rip Curl Edition has the following to offer:
- Customized looks with the Rip Curl Personas. Just in case someone doesn’t know this, Personas are skins or themes that you can use to customize the way the Firefox browser looks. A large selection of Personas is available here.
- Instant access to Rip Curl’s social media pages.
- Pre-pinned app tabs to Rip Curl’s event and product websites.
- An RSS feed to Rip Curl’s video podcasts.

The Rip Curl Edition of Firefox is available for download free of charge here. It is available for Mac and Windows, in English, French, Spanish, Brazilian and Portuguese.

I started this article by mentioning that there’s a customized Firefox version that puts the spotlight on Microsoft’s Bing. That would be Firefox with Bing which has been recently released to the public. It is available for download here.
